Use "remember" in a sentence
  • "I am the voice of a little girl clutching her expensive beaded purse. and applying glossy chardonnay lipstick over and over because I like the hypnotically soothing way it feels, a rhythym of comfort. a smooth frost over curved hills and I like feeling. trying to remember the sensations I once loved. in the midst of sleep, swimming in the silk fabric of luxurious bedding, sometimes I am startled by the accidental touch of my own hand, brushing against the dipped hollow of my alabaster back, and the softness makes me inhale sharply ~because I remember~ because, I still remember your breath warming my dreams."
  • "And I think one of the most important things we need to remember is to be true to ourselves."
  • "Thing to remember is to clean and oil them before you put them up, BP is the nastiest stuff around and if you wait till next year you will have the same problem again."
